Details

This short walk starts from the Robert Owen Museum right in the centre of Newtown and takes in the sites most associated with Owen. Although Newtown has lost many of its 18th century buildings, you can still get a feel of Owen’s Newtown in the walk by the river and the views up and down the high street to the steep sides of the Severn Valley. The walk is just a few hundred yards and will take around 15 to 20 minutes.
